Waterman Celluloid 52/3/32

I've been wanting to obtain a celluloid Waterman 52 for a long time. I knew they were basically an (exclusively black) Waterman 3, but I wanted one with the 52 on it.

 

I finally found one recently, one made in Canada, and with a cracker jack nib to boot.

 

I was very excited to take some pictures with the black (and American made) models 3 and 32 I have, given their similarity.

 

Left to right: 52, 3, 32:

And here's the 52's awesome superflex stub:

Does the 3 have a '2' nib as well, or does it have a '3' nib (if there is such a thing)

Sorry for the delay… of half a decade…!


But no, the number three was essentially a celluloid Waterman 52. Per Richard Binder’s AWESOME book on the Waterman’s company history, there was a Jet (black) celluloid model stamped with “52”, but these were quickly renamed to 3 (or 32… I’m not sure which came first…).

 

Anywho, all three of these pens have a No. 2 sized nib.
